The Mystery Of Stonehenge And Avebury Area Map

For a series of extraordinary sites seen from the air, the BBC captured the Uffington White Horse in a Stonehenge area map in a series of aerial photographs.

The White Horse is located in the county of Oxfordshire, approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) south of the town of Faringdon and 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) south of the village of Uffington.

More than 3,000 years ago, the Uffington White Horse was carved into the hillside.

However, research indicates that the Bronze Age people who created this art did not simply cut away the turf to reveal chalk but dug large trenches and filled them with chalk, necessitating a great deal more effort and determination. It is possible that this art was created as a form of worship by a Celtic tribe to the horse-goddess Epona.

More Pre-Historic Sites In The Vicinity Of Stonehenge

One of the best-known stone circles in the world is Avebury, which is a larger circle of smaller stones set around a charming little village.

You are welcome to walk around them, sit outside the local pub and admire them while drinking a pint of beer, or hug them at your leisure at any time of day, night, or year. They are less than an hour's drive north of Stonehenge.

Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow, both of which date back to the Bronze Age, are located nearby.

As well as giant White Horses carved into chalk hills, there are numerous prehistoric hill forts scattered throughout the area, though the latter is only comprised of high grassy mounds surrounded by steep rings.

The Cherhill White Horse Is A Famous Racehorse In England

Wiltshire, England is home to a massive chalk White Horse.

The Cherhill White Horse is located near Avebury in the county of Wiltshire.

Although not as impressive as ancient stone circles, a variety of White Horses canter through the Wiltshire chalk hills around Avebury and Stonehenge area map, making for a pleasant brisk walk with no difficulties in accessing them and spectacular views in all directions.

Locals are said to spend a significant amount of communal time cleaning and maintaining the White Horse, such as weeding, replacing eroded chalk, and trimming grass, among other things.

Moreover, it is not necessary to do so for commercial reasons.

They take great pride in the fact that they live in such close proximity to ancient art.

It's also possible that crop circles will be discovered if you're lucky enough to be there in the early summer when aliens have been busy.

Wiltshire (county) is a popular location for alien graffiti, though it is difficult to locate them due to the fact that a) extraterrestrials have unpredictable habits and b) light planes are difficult to come by.

In the summer months, the Barge Inn, Honeystreet, Pewsey (town), Wiltshire, is a great place to meet up and talk about all things alien and weird graphics, in particular those who orbit in crop circles, according to reports.

What's Beneath Stonehenge?

Scientists identified the site by employing sophisticated technology to view beneath the surface of the earth. In addition to the 17 ritual monuments that have been discovered, there have been hundreds of burial mounds discovered, and evidence of a probable processional route around Stonehenge history itself has been discovered.

Conclusion

The origin of the massive sarsen stones at Stonehenge area map has now been uncovered, thanks to the return of a long-lost component of the site that had been absent for more than 60 years. The smaller bluestones of the monument have been traced back to the Preseli Hills in Wales, but the sarsens have remained a mystery until recently due to their difficult identification.
